Literacy and the Great Commandments. The author makes the case for including literacy in evangelism and discipleship efforts in developing nations like India. Drawing on over 20 years of cross-cultural ministry experience, Don Edwards offers an insightful look at literacyâ€™s key role in building a strong, healthy body of believers. Edwards looks at the crippling effects of illiteracy, examines Scriptureâ€™s view of literacy, and explains literacyâ€™s value as a door-opener in communities that are resistant to traditional evangelism.
The Great Commission commands us to â€œgo and make disciples of all nations.â€ Likewise, we are called to fulfill the Great Compassion: â€œLove your neighbor as yourself.â€ Both are expressions of Jesusâ€™ love for people. Readers will be challenged to share the gift of literacy as a tangible act of obedience to Jesusâ€™ two â€œGreatâ€ commandments. The author makes a compelling case for not abandoning literacy work in the midst of the current emphasis on Orality and story telling among illiterate people.
